— Volunteers in Durham will work through the night to prepare Thanksgiving dinner at the Durham Rescue Mission.

More than 500 people are expected to pitch in to grill, carve and serve 75 turkeys.

Thanksgiving draws more volunteers to the rescue mission than any other day of the year, a mission spokesman said.

Guests will be treated to turkey with all the trimmings starting at noon Thursday and carnival games throughout the day. Each guest can leave with warm clothes for winter and a bag of groceries.
